Russia-Installed Police In Crimea Detain Another Crimean Tatar Activist

Russia-imposed police in Ukraine's Moscow-annexed Crimea have detained Crimean Tatar activist Abdureshit Dzhepparov after searching his home on April 25, the Crimean Solidarity human right groups says. The reasons for the search and detainment remain unclear. Since illegally annexing Crimea in 2014, Russia has imposed pressure on Crimean Tatars, the peninsula's indigenous ethnic group, many of whom openly protested the annexation. Dozens of Crimean Tatars have been sentenced to lengthy prison terms by Russian authorities on extremism charges since then. To read the original story by RFE/RL's Crimea.Realities, click here.
